Before Guild (BG)

[[The Dune Encyclopedia]] mentions the house's ancestor [[Yukio Moritani]] on whose support an the campaign against rising [[House Ginaz]] to the status of [[House Major]] rooted the old enmity which finally led between open [[War of Assassins]] between the two.[[Keshas Zhorzh]] was said to have been an [[Assassin]] in service of the Moritanis.
88 Battle of Corrin brought the Corrinos to primacy over the
 
other houses of the Landsraad and brought about the
 
formation of the Padishah Imperium. House Moritani
 
supported the Corrinos wholeheartedly, at an enormous
 
cost to resources and lives, and was rewarded by the
 
Governorship of Grumman to Lorenzo XXV, making Moritani a
 
House Minor.

Spacing Guild, by selling off most of its spaceship
